Are you happy with the IPMI on Supermicro? I've been unable to 
personally test a KVM + remote media IPMI from them, especially
the one integrated into their newer motherboards. I was quite
happy with Sun's eLOM. Less happy with HP and Dell (and Fujitsu-Siemens)
which require extra licenses to unlock anything above baseline
capability IPMI (oh, and don't get the started on them not selling 
empty drive caddies).
